Niles is surrounded on all sides by unincorporated areas of Maine Township, always some gang related shit going on around there.

Also, almost nothing good occurs when you're out at 4 AM at a bar. For some reason, too, "sports" bars are always a magnet for shootings. It's funny, all you have to do is hang the "sports" bar identifier on your joint and add a couple of more TVs to make it seem like your shithole dive bar isn't really that bad.

Don't I know it.

I've been involved with some truly stupid escapades at the 5AM burrito place next door, north of the Binny's, where everybody goes after they get ejected from the bars.

So a Middle Eastern club, two Latino bars, a Euro-trash bar, a Korean club and an Afro-American club all hit the "flush" lever at 3:30AM....what happens, and where do you place your crew served weapons? This is a graded event and you have ten minutes, begin. S/F.....Ken M

Unhappy Just DAMN!!!!

Chicago girl apparently gang-raped on Facebook Live, police say...

Quote:
A 15-year-old Chicago girl appeared to be the victim of a horrifying gang rape -- by a group who streamed the attack on Facebook Live.

None of the roughly 40 people who watched the video called police about the attack, investigators said. It’s the second time in months that Chicago police have investigated an apparent attack streamed live on Facebook.

Police finally learned of the attack after the girl’s mother approached Superintendent Eddie Johnson late Monday afternoon and showed him screenshots of the alleged assault, spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Johnson was leaving a news conference in the Lawndale neighborhood on the city’s West Side.

“Here’s what’s even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw it and didn’t pick up the phone to dial 911,” Johnson told WGN-TV. “That’s not right. It’s just not right.”
Some folks (generations) just need kill'in.

Those that watch violence like that and allow it to be committed should be criminally charged along with the other clowns. We will soon be known by what we allow to happen with impunity.

Savages. And those that watch and do nothing, savages as well.

These guys don’t have any boundaries,” said defense attorney Stuart Goldberg, who pulled into a parking lot next to the crime scene minutes after the shooting.

Goldberg said he was running a little late when pulled into a small privately owned lot next to the Popeye’s and found police swarming the area. Investigators found a shell casing near the spot where Goldberg would have parked his black Rolls-Royce Phantom.

His business is booming!

His office is right next to the Popeye's on 26th, just west of California. The courthouse and jail complex are directly across the street. I'm pretty sure there aren't any law offices that are closer than that.

Also, you might say he has a captive clientele.

No Rolls, but him and my cousin have a nice condo in one of the best addresses on the Gold Coast, same building that the Blackhawks have their offices in. In fact, the Hawks throw a Christmas party every year for their employees and they also invite the people living in that section of the building.

He gets a lot of repeat business, too. Guys almost 80, but his practice is so lucrative, and he's in pretty decent shape, so that he just can't give it up.

Would the charge be depraved indifference? Accessory after the fact?

Unfortunately, I don't know of any charges that can be applied. In my state, there are none! No one can be compelled to act like a human and assist someone when needed.

Only in AMERICA that (low-life scumbag) criminals can afford a "defense" attorney multiple fucking times!

I wonder if, public defenders get paid by the case? If so, all of them should be multimillionaires in Chicago...

You know, we keep bitching about the assholes, which may be appropriate, but someone continues to allow them to get away with it.

Oh right, about 300 posts back....

Fear not, Brother! The nation has become so PC that there will never be a law put in place to compel someone to assist another who is being beat down, raped, or murdered. Besides, people are way too self-absorbed to want to do it in the first place.

Some folks may not want to get involved, for fear of their safety. Even then, at least they should make a phone call and report it anonymously.

Sad fact is that nowadays people might think it's "reality porn." Pretty messed up.

That's exactly why they don't do it and exactly why things will never change and they will always be victims. But, that's their choice.

PDs, like their State's Attorney counterparts, are paid a straight salary. And it is amazing that a lot of these guys arrested for various felonies are able to afford top notch legal counsel.

As for that facebook video, the guys involved are well known in their neighborhood for pulling shit like this, apparently they've done it before, it just didn't come to light like it did this time.
